    I didn't say that. But this administration doesn't even answer questions about things that are known. How about we start there?

    My apologies, it was hard to tell what you were saying, seeing as you didn't actually offer anything...

    What exactly are you wanting then? If the answers are already known, what's the purpose of asking the question?

    Well, I don't owe you any explanation of anything I say or laugh about.

    That's correct. I thought we were trying to have a discussion though.

    What has been proven about Trump ties to Russia? Flynn had conversations that were not illegal or unethical. It was similar to Obama saying he would have more flexibility with Russia after the election.
    Until something is proven, it is a smear campaign. I have not read 1 article that has any proven facts about Russia except that Trump held a Ms. Univers pageant was held there in 2013. Needless to say, Trump was not a candidate for President in 2013 and having a pageant there is not illegal.

    My understanding with the article was he was chastising Trump for belittling the press.

    Here's a question: What is the purpose of the press?

    In that past it was the Press that held the Government and Society accountable for its actions by digging to find out Why, When, Where and How.

    They've not been great at it but at times they've got it right.

    Facts Mr Builder, those are facts. The left objects on the grounds those ruin their case. A member of the administration or citizen can call Russia a thousand times and talk about anything except national secrets. Hell the left sent lindsey Lohan to the middle east as their representative.

    If found they should shoot the leaker as a treasonous traitor because although they are trying to destroy Trump they are also damaging America. Kill the leak.

    Heard a great analogy today for how a real event could become fake news.

    Pretend for a moment that a reporter for the campus newspaper sees Science Friction (sorry, needed an example and I figured you would take it better then anyone) speaking with a known prostitute and sees him handing her something. Headline the next edition reads SF speaks to prostitute and hands her something. The body of the story speculates on what SF may have given her and what he may have gotten in return. Reality is that SF gave her a document with information on how to get out of the profession and got nothing in return. The newspaper has printed nothing false but the news is fake none the less.

    This hits home a great point. If a Dem is in office, the press would do WAY more checking into a story before running with it (and may even try to bury it if it makes the Dem look bad). With Trump, if there is any perceived smoke, the media just runs with it and hopes there is fire later. Total double standard.

    I agree he needs to tone it down, but I have to say I'm enjoying how he's driving the media nuts. They deserve it!

    As to doing his job, I think it would be a lot easier if the obstructionist democrats would allow him to. But they will fight everything he does tooth and nail because they want him to fail as president.
